Abstract:

A combinatorial principle CECA is formulated and its equivalence with GCH+ certain weakenings of \Box_\lambda for singular \lambda is proved. CECA is used to show that certain “almost point-< \tau” families can be refined to point-< \tau families by removing a small set from each member of the family. This theorem in turn is used to show the consistency of “every first countable T_1-space with a weakly uniform base has a point-countable base.” - published version (17p)
